Perrie Edwards' pet cat Prada has died.

The 23-year-old singer has taken to social media to pay tribute to her furry feline, who she had with her former fiancé Zayn Malik, and the blonde beauty has vowed her beloved moggy will ''always'' hold a dear place in her heart.

The blonde beauty - who ended her two-year engagement with the dark haired hunk in 2015 - announced the tragic news on social media, which saw her upload a sweet picture of the fluffy animal to her Instagram account.

She captioned it: ''Can't believe we had to say goodbye to this little one today! Always in my heart (sic).''

However, the 'Pillowtalk' hitmaker and the fellow Little Mix band members, including Jesy Nelson, 25, Jade Thirlwall, 24, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 25, have yet to publicly reach out to grieving Perrie.

Perrie and Zayn got Prada together shortly after announcing their engagement in 2013, and introduced her to their fans on social media via a montage of pictures.

At the time, she said: ''Say hello to the new member of the family, Prada :) (sic)''

The 'Shout Out To My Ex' singer - who is currently dating 23-year-old football player Alex Oxlaide Chamberlain - previously admitted she struggled to find somewhere to live when she split from Zayn because of her pets.

She wrote in Little Mix's book 'Our World': ''After I split with my partner, out of the blue, I had nowhere to go, which was incredibly stressful. For a while I had no idea what to do.

''I thought about renting, but I've got dogs and cats, so that was no good.''
